Vaughan and Staples continue their reign as the greatest talents in comics. The story slows down a bit, but only to make way for yet more development for each and every character. In the midst of the tense, epic showdown toward the end of the volume, even Lying Cat gets some brief backstory. Saga continues to demonstrate a perfect merger of fantasy in a scifi setting.

Comic – Doctor Strange: The Oath: A-

The Oath is a great introduction to Dr. Strange and a decent detective story. I hadn’t noticed how similar his origin is to Iron Man’s, but it’s a good formula. It had several great moments, and each issue knew how to end in cliffhangers. The arc flowed as you’d expect, nothing astounding but worth a read.

This is hands-down the best comic currently produced. Fiona Staples’ art is so gorgeous I find myself pausing just to soak it in every few moments. The character designs alone make it worth a read. But Vaughan is crafting another masterpiece too, with a basic plot made amazing through its relatable characters and measured pacing.
